Good morning, ProviderNation.
Our California brethren got some nasty-grams in the mail this week. CalPERS, the state employees’ insurance company, told its customers that it was jacking up long-term care insurance premiums by 85 percent over the next two years.

Elsewhere, psychologist Suzsanne Singer has died. Singer, who was 88, might have been the kind of person George Eliot was talking about—Singer “lived faithfully a hidden life,” training volunteers to go into nursing home to comfort those who had no visitors. Death be not proud and all that.
A New York man practices yoga to keep Alzheimer’s at bay.
And the fine folks at Fox Business News have some thoughts on having The Talk with one’s folks.
